Our WCS clubs have been BUSY! The Cooking Club and Brush Lettering class met in October and the kids had a blast! They were talking about all that they did for days after. The Community Service Club has been busy serving our community and others. They have set up a bulletin board so we can celebrate random acts of kindness. When we see a student or staff member being kind we fill out a leaf and put it on the tree. You can see all the kindness that is being shown with our FULL fall tree! The running club ran in the Donut Dash (sponsored by First Baptist Woodway) and the Zoo Stampede. They earned first place in many of the races! If your student would like to be part of a club let us know… they can still sign up!
Last Friday we celebrated the men and women who have served our country in the military. The middle school students walked in the Veteran’s Day Parade in downtown Waco. The Pre-K-5th grades stayed on campus, wore flag colors and learned about what it means to be a veteran. We are so thankful for the sacrifices that have been made for us and our country!
Today our 2nd graders went to Veterans One Stop. They sang patriotic songs (along with sign language), handed out cards, and visited with veterans. They got to hear amazing stories from the brave men and women who served our country in wars dating back to World War II! These kids went with servants’ hearts and their love for Jesus and the the military will be shown tonight on 2 different news stations! Check out our 2nd graders participating in our “do something” theme at 5:00 on channel 25 and then again at 5:30 on channel 44. We are so proud of them and the way they represent Jesus and WCS!
Mark your calendar for our Thanks-for-Giving Fun Run! It will be Friday, November 17th in the morning and then we will come in for our WCS Thanksgiving Feast. This is going to be a great time to be together as a WCS family and raise funds for our school. The funds we raise each year through these big events help keep our tuition low while still providing high academics. Our Thanks-for-Giving Fun Run will replace our annual Taste of the Wild event so we need everyone’s help! Whether you want to support virtually, run or walk–we invite everyone to join in on the fun! Below is the link to give online, feel free to share it! Watch Facebook over the next 2 weeks for fun trivia questions and information. Make sure to use #thankful4WCS when posting answers and pictures! See you out there Wildcats!
Our 1st graders have seen a need in our community and they are stepping in to be Jesus’ hands and feet! They will be partnering with Meadow Brook Baptist Church and collecting plastic shopping bags. The ladies of the that church turn them into bed mats for the homeless. We will have a box by the office and outside the first grade classrooms for collecting the bags. Send them in with your student and they can deliver them during the day. This project will be going on all year so keep those bags coming!

Our 3rd Graders did a GREAT job following through with our “Do Something” theme! Over the last few weeks they have collected Gatorade, protein bars, water and snacks for our local Police Department. Yesterday, they went to Woodway Police Department, delivered the goodies and cards, got a tour of the facility and prayed over the wonderful men and women who protect us. We are so proud of these students and the way they joyfully live out their faith!
Last week the 5th grade wrote a new classroom rule following the same procedure that our country uses to write laws. Each 5th grade class chose a president for the day and then each table elected senators, representative, and judges. Our president then addressed the Congress about what he would like this new classroom rule to include. The House of Representatives and Senate drafted a bill and passed it back and forth before sending it to the president. Both of our presidents chose to sign the bill (instead of exercising their right to veto) making it an official classroom rule. Our judges then took the paper our president had signed and wrote their opinions on what the rule specifically meant. The students did a wonderful job on this assignment and were confronted with many of the same issues that lawmakers face. They were able to not only work together but realized the power and limitations of the different branches of the government. WOW! 5th grade it FUN!
